How Should You Use Those Free Resume Samples? You don't need to be afraid of the free resume samples that you might find on the internet. Check them out, by all means. But instead of copying text verbatim, put those samples to better use by studying the different formats (the style and structure of the resume, including the breakdown of categories) and the content – with respect to the way the author chose to phrase responsibilities, accomplishments, etc. Use resume samples as a source from which to glean ideas, and as an opportunity to immerse yourself in the language of the craft. Take the lessons learned from studying those samples, and apply those lessons with originality toward the crafting of your own document. By avoiding the look-alike text that every Tom, Dick and Harry has glommed onto, you're more likely to build a professional tribute to an actual individual, and subsequently attract the eye of a hiring official. And that's the goal.
Match & Map Your Skills To Their Needs, Always match your skills to the needs of the job you are applying for. If their job requires customer service skills, be sure you have that skill and list it on your resume. If you do not have a skill the employer is looking for then try to map the skills you do have to the one they desire. For example, if the employer wants someone experienced in Microsoft Word and you have not used Word then think about what you have used. Maybe you have used Word Perfect or Open Office Writer. If so, be sure to write this down! You can include it like this: Experienced in Open Office Writer (very similar to Microsoft Word). If you follow the good resume samples above, you will do a much better job of showing how qualified you are. Remember, this is the whole point of your resume: to get the employer's attention and show them you are a great fit for their needs. If you do this you should be granted an interview.
A resume sample of a college professor would is be germane to most job-seekers since it would not reflect their unique ability, training, education, and experience. Rather, the important elements in a professional educational resume should be examined. These elements include the look of a resume, its effectiveness, and the ease of extracting the important information. Usually, we submit a resume in support of an application. The resume reflects who you are and how qualified you are to handle the job. Therefore, it should be a ”professional” document. You would probably not hire a person who did not care enough about a position to properly edit their resume. A written document can be a reflection of your character. A poorly prepared resume reflects a lackadaisical attitude and a lack of professionalism. It indicates that you may not be able to rely on this person when it counts. When possible, you should have a resume professionally prepared to be certain that you are being presented as well as is possible.
